Shopper spends 50,000 euros on wine at Paris duty free

A shopper has broken the record for duty-free purchases at Paris's Charles de Gaulle airport by splurging nearly 50,000 euros (£42,000/$66,000)) on six bottles of exclusive wine, the airport said on Monday.

The shopper, who was identified only as “from the far east”, bought a bottle of Romanee Conti 1995, a Chateau Margaux 2003, two bottles of Chateau Lafitte 1982 and two bottles of Petrus 1980

The airport noted high-quality wines "sold better at the end of the year". Travellers "buy each year in the shops of the two Parisian airports more than a million bottles of wine and nearly 400,000 bottles of champagne", Paris airport operator ADP said in a statement.
